Sadly, I did not . I persuaded my friend to go to the concert , "I heard the Grateful Dead are really good live..." . It wasn't till the 80's that we would go to multiple shows .
LA in the 70's,HEAVY police action ! Helmeted, riot gear, cops patted us down ,... it is funny when you realize how MELLOW the 1976 Dead were , the robust police presence did not make sense .
The Shrine is a concert hall, and one of those old, ornate ones, my mother remembers seeing opera, and ballet there in the 40's . The AUDs here on the Archive give a pretty good idea what it was like .In hindsight , we were lucky to get to see them in such a "small" , and decent sounding concert hall .
Saw them here again in early 78 ( 1/10/78 ), an awesome show ,(check out the AUD ) .
